Spirit won a golden gong at the Australian Cinematographer Society NSW Awards in 2009.Part installation, part photographic exhibition, part urban corroboree commissioned by CITY OF SYDNEY. Marketing funds were spent on bringing community together around a new spirit/vision.
The inspiration for this project was the idea to stage a modern ritual based on the concept of an urban corroboree. This was held at Sydney's historic Customs House: "a gateway to information, ideas and inspiration in the heart of the city". It brought together everyday Australians of all ages, race and demographics to participate and create unforgettable memories (a spirit rising – symbolic of the greater collective awakening).
